The Phantom

Post by Booga » 02 Jan 2015, 07:28

Would you believe that our local paper has just removed The Phantom from it's comic strip section in favour of more puzzles ?


The Man Who Will Not Die will not be defeated by such insignificant beings.

The Ghost Who Walks

It was early in the morning and I just needed to chill
I grabbed my daily Bulletin from off the window sill.
Sat down in my favourite chair just to relax a bit
but when I got to the comics I let out a scream Oh S..T.

They’ve taken out The Phantom he was nowhere to be seen
The page was filled with puzzles where his story should have been.
I flicked all through the sections perhaps I missed him in my haste
But no they’ve given him the chop, “Oh what a bloody waste“.

He’s fought pirates, robbers, cutthroats been their nemesis for years
but now The Bullies got him it would bring a man to tears.
They say they did some sort of survey but all surveys can tell a lie
they don’t realise that we love him, this “Man Who Cannot Die”

He is history in the making that I’ve followed since a teen
Evil doers shake and tremble when he comes on the scene.
The Skull Cave and the Deep Woods familiar places to us all
and if we want his help in times of need we only have to call.

I could handle loosing Garfield, and The Swamp is not my style
Overboard is sort of so so but it sometimes bring a smile.
Crosswords, puzzles, word games they are all right for some
but for the older generation the Ghost Who Walks is still the one.

His voice can chill you to the bone and freeze your blood to ice
He fights for justice and for freedom, his grip can crush you like a vice.
The Phantom has a thousand ears and under pressure will not crack
Hear our words now Bulletin “ We want our Phantom Back “.
